Thank you for taking time to visit our web site. The goal of Boy Scouting is to develop character, citizenship and fitness. The Boy Scout program provides your son with the opportunity to learn tools to survive in the real world. Among the number of skills he will learn are: first aid, camping, wilderness survival, cooking, and leadership.
Over the number of years I have been involved as an adult leader in Scouting, I have learned that in order for a boy to advance and succeed, he needs the support of his family. In general the boys that advance and reach their goals in Scouting, are the ones whose parents become involved in the program. That is why we encourage parental involvement. This is an investment of your time that you will be reimbursed for 10 fold, as you enjoy the pride and satisfaction of all his future successes.
Our Troop is very active. We have been rock climbing, horseback riding, canoeing, camping and skiing. We try to offer a variety of activities so that there is something for everyone. The activities are picked by the boys with guidance from the leaders. We have 3 major fundraisers every year 2 of these help the troop and one helps Rainbow Council.
If you would like additional information about our Troop you can send me a message using the Contact Us page or come visit us at the Joliet Moose.
Yours in Scouting,
Troop 175, Scoutmaster
